This POV makes me feel dizzy - perhaps a straight horizon and lower POV would have been better?

la scène en pleine action et des 'acteurs' combattants qui savent ce qu'il font, leur stature est bonne. Une brillante idée que de tilter l'image ici.

Hi Ary, I have to disagree with Tempodulu on the tilt, I think it adds an element of dynanism to the this shot, which might have been a bit static otherwise. nice work. Cheers, Steve
